Jun 28, 2024

Remember the thrill of buying your first home? There’s nothing like that first time buying experience as you explore potential houses and envision all the possibilities ahead. From entertaining friends at dinner parties to welcoming new babies into your family, your home is the backdrop to every season of life. But, how do you choose a home that will grow with you?

Bardwell Homes design houses for lifelong living. Whether you’re navigating singlehood or newlywed bliss, managing a busy household, or taking in the calm of an empty nest, Bardwell Homes evolve with you. Intentionally crafted to cater to each stage of life, our homes adapt to your needs as life unfolds, serving as the foundation for ever-changing family dynamics and the demands of daily life. 

Instilling a sense of belonging into a place is what makes a house feel like a home. And, it’s the driving force behind our thoughtful design in all of our new homes, including our 2-story residences.  

3 Benefits of 2-Story Homes

Discover the perks of our 2-story residences in Bardwell Homes where you can enjoy versatile and spacious living arrangements that cater to all seasons of life. With expansive main floors ideal for hosting guests and performing daily activities, and secluded upper levels for serenity and privacy, our 2-Story homes offer luxury, comfort, and functionality that will accommodate a variety of lifestyle needs and preferences. 

1. Built-in Southern Hospitality with Dedicated Space for Guests

2 Story House Plans in Baton Rouge

In many 2-Story Bardwell Homes, we place the bedrooms upstairs to prioritize a sense of privacy. Whether you’ve invited your old college friends to Baton Rouge to stay for a tailgate during football season or you’re keeping the grandchildren for the weekend, the 2-Story house plan provides plenty of space for entertaining without sacrificing comfort. 

Bedrooms upstairs also mean dedicated space for everyone throughout the day. While you enjoy peace and quiet downstairs, let your grandchildren spread out in one of the upstairs bedrooms for playtime… until they are ready to join you in the kitchen for a snack, of course. This 2-Story layout fosters a warm and inviting atmosphere within the downstairs living spaces, lovely for hosting parties and creating lasting memories, like sipping cocktails in the garden or baking cookies at the kitchen island. 

2. Convenient & Accessible House Plans with Downstairs Primary Suite

In select 2-Story homes, we feature a master bedroom on the main floor, offering convenience and accessibility. The downstairs primary suite provides a seamless living experience, ideal for older homeowners who prefer to minimize the use of stairs in their daily routines. Furthermore, this layout also benefits individuals and families who want to enjoy easy access to essential living spaces without compromising on luxury and comfort. 

When you partner with a trusted builder like Bardwell Homes, your vision matters. Imagine customizing your downstairs primary suite to suit your personal lifestyle needs: perhaps adding dressers to your spacious walk-in closet, upgrading your luxurious ensuite bathroom with wall sconce lighting, a full-glass shower and free-standing tub, or incorporating artful finishes into your space. Through thoughtful design, Bardwell Homes provides the personalization you need to ensure that your home evolves with you. 

3. Bonus Space Offers Flexible Living Solutions
